Santa Barbara Maritime Museum Hosts Annual Kardboard Kayak Races July 8th

July 8th

SBMM's Kardboard Kayak Race 

Challenge teams to a battle of wits, design and courage!  Teams of up to 4 will receive 2 sheets of cardboard, 1 roll of tape, a marker, a utility knife, a yardstick, and one hour to construct a functioning kayak. Then they will be ready to race other teams in their heat, finding out whose design can hold up to the pressure of paddling out to a buoy and back.

The Kardboard Kayak Races are divided into separate heats, with prizes awarded to participants in the Family Fun Heat (geared to  family groups with younger kayak paddlers) and the Paddling Pros heat (geared to adults and/or skilled competitors).

Speed and construction design will be the true test!
